    Cadillac’s parent, General Motors Company, has filed to trademark the name “Symboliq” for use on a future Cadillac electric vehicle, Cadillac Society has uncovered.

    Made on July 22nd, 2020 with the Swiss Federal Institute of Intellectual Property, the filing consists of two names: “Symboliq” and “Cadillac Symboliq.” Both filings list “Motorized land vehicles, namely automobiles” as the Goods and Services with which the names will be associated.

    Re: Symboliq To Be Name Of Future Cadillac Electric Vehicle

    Ouch, I think I like those old man name's like Brougham and Deville better than Symboliq, which isn't saying much. If they went with nice, fresh names like "Ciel" I'd be fine with names. "iq" isn't working for me. But, it won't change my decision to buy a vehicle if I like it.

    They should name the cars like Prince and just give them symboliq's. Everyone can say "the car formerly known as CT5".

    There is only one reason to file a trademark application in Switzerland and that is that GM plans on selling BEV Cadillacs there. I suspect that there is a similar application for Symboliq filed wit the EU Trademark Office that is yet to be published. Absent a Green New Deal GM may try to take advantage of the penalties the EU is placing on fossil fuel vehicles to generate volume.

    I'm hoping the plan is for GM to make a major push to fully re-enter the European market once their Chevrolet and Cadillac EVs have all hit the market.

    You're much too kind. I did get a laugh out of it myself too though. There needs to be some sort of symbolism to go along with such an absurd name.

    That would be way cool, but I really can't fathom them having it together enough to be able to puull it off.

    You know...there was a post a few days ago deriding "Arm Chair CEOs" saying that we can't know better than the actual executives...stuff like this makes me know that I can do a better job than them. Hell, they could've reached into their bag of concept names for the EVs since none of the projects ever saw light of day...Elmiraj, Ciel, Escala, and so on...but this *iq stuff is garbage.

    All kidding aside, these names don't particularly bother me, if it was a vehicle I liked and I had the $$ I'd buy one. Call it a Lyriq or Cayenne or Toureg or whatever. Heck I'm more shocked by Ford calling the Mock-E thing a "Mustang".

    You might be shocked but it's the new reality and possibly the progenitor for a future BEV Mustang coupe.
    Ford either does this or wind up like Camaro, a great Sports car that very few want to buy...
    The fact that Ford built Ken Block a special version with 1,400 HP shows that Ford is counting on Mach E big time.

    Or Tiguan, quite possibly the worst name in the history of cars.
